November Monthly Newsletter

I hope this November newsletter finds all of you doing well.  One important change has occurred since last month’s mailing: the date and time of the annual church conference with our District Superintendent, Rev. Julia Yim, is now scheduled for Sunday, December 9, 2018 at 3 p.m. here at the church.  Please try to attend if possible because you will gain a better understanding of how the church is organized and what to expect in the upcoming new year.

We have invitation cards being printed for you to hand out to friends and neighbors with the expectation that you will use them to offer those folks who are near and dear to you an opportunity to come and share in worship with us.

This is a month for thanksgiving and I’d like to remind our church family that your offerings every Sunday are greatly appreciated.  We would like to encourage your regular weekly support and ask you to pray about tithing or increasing the amount that you contribute to our important ministries.  A portion of your giving goes throughout the world serving communities in need in many different circumstances and settings.  Thank you.

As we come closer to the end of the year, please consider ways that, together, we can better serve our church family and the places where we live as faithful servants of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  I look forward to the Thanksgiving holiday, Christmas time, and the upcoming New Year.  I pray that the Lord will continue to bless us and that the year ahead will bring peace to our homes, our world, and our hearts.

May God bless you and yours richly, now and always!

With joy,

Pastor Steve
